Minecraft PS4 Bedrock Update Patch Notes for December 10

Minecraft's new PS4 Bedrock update has been released this afternoon bringing cross-platform support between Xbox One, Windows 10 PCs, iOS, Android, Nintendo Switch, and now, for the very first time, PS4.

“One of Minecraft’s core missions is to connect players across devices and provide the best experience regardless of platform,” says Minecraft studio head Helen Chiang,

“We continue to fulfill that mission here today by welcoming PS4 players to Minecraft on Bedrock and growing our cross-platform multiplayer community.”

This means that now cross-platform between Xbox One, Windows 10 PCs, iOS, Android, Nintendo Switch, and PS4 is possible. Additionally, the update is completely free and every player will keep his possessions and progress.

The update itself is relatively small and only 1GB for players on PlayStation 4 so you won't need to make too much room on that HDD.

Below you'll find all the associated patch notes with today's new PS4 update, including details regarding some of the games other small changes.

Minecraft – Buzzy Bees – 1.14.0 (Bedrock)

New Features:

  • PlayStation®4
    • Welcome PlayStation®4 players to the Bedrock version of Minecraft! All Bedrock platforms can now cross-play with PS4™ consoles. More information can be found in the Minecraft for PlayStation®4 FAQ .
    • Bees!
      • Bees are cute, fuzzy, neutral mobs
      • Don’t hurt them, they don’t want to hurt you
      • Bees love pretty flowers and spend their lives gathering pollen from them
      • After gathering pollen, bees fly back to their nest
      • If a bee can't find pollen, it will return home
      • If a bee doesn’t have a home nest, it will wander around until it finds one it can use
      • Bees don’t like the rain and they sleep at night. They will return to their nest in these cases
      • Bee Nests and Beehives
        • Bee Nests generate in Flower Forests, Plains, and Sunflower Plains biomes
        • When a bee visits a nest and completes its journey undisturbed, the level of honey increases
        • Using shears on a full hive or nest will harvest Honeycomb and using a glass bottle will give a Honey Bottle
        • Campfire smoke calms bees – Place one underneath the nest or hive to keep them in chill mode
        • Redstone friendly! Dispensers can shear honeycombs from hives and nests
        • Honey Block
          • Greatly reduces movement speed and jump height, but also reduces fall damage
          • You can “slide” down a wall of honey blocks to slow your fall (Parkour FTW!)
          • When a honey block is piston-moved, adjacent blocks also move
          • When a honey block is piston-moved, entities on top are moved along with it
          • Honeycomb Block
            • A decorative block that can be crafted with Honeycomb
